Apparently china will execute their criminals (which I think we all knew), but they will then turn around and harvest the organs of the criminals for people who are waiting for transplants.

I am sitting there thinking this is the most brilliant thing I have hear during my time there at university, and these poor people are just staring at me with these horrified faces.

Needless to say they nnnneever had time to talk to me about the lord jesus christ ever again smile.gif

I am in 100% agreement. Probably why I like New Mexico so much, aside from a few places close to Texas this has to be one of the least politically polarized places a person can live in the country.

Now that we have gone completely off topic and borderline politics/religion we should get back to headphones.

I am excited for the next generation of Sennheiser momentum headphones or whatever they will be called. Since they will not call them momemntum 3.0 when released I wonder what they will be called.

My understanding is that Bluetooth 4.0 or whatever the new standard will be does not address sound quality but rather more signal processing to reduce interference and increase transmitter to receiver distance.

I know most everybody here is all about wired connections and the highest quality possible and if I am sitting at my desk I agree. But I am out and about a lot and I usually am carrying a bunch of stuff so cutting the cord has been huge for me.

I'd really love some wireless bluetooth earbuds, I am going to give it another year for the markets to fight it out, but I plan to get some nice ones eventually, I hate Apple, but if there Apple bluetooth earbuds are indeed the best for music under the $300 price range, I may go with those, but I am certain competition will beat those quite quickly, if competition has not already (haven't really kept up with it).

Side note- I love my ifi ican SE, Class A amp's are indeed the only way to go. After graduation my plans are to own a STAX SRS-3100 + bluetooth earbuds + keep my current 4 cans and 3 amps. because they all have a different flavor.

I think BT 5.0 is the one we're all waiting for. Here's a quote from headphone.com

"It quadruples the wireless transmission range, boosts the broadcast messaging ability by 800% and doubles the data speed capacity — the critical factor for enabling a robust audio connection with true 'lossless' uncompressed quality."

Until headphones come out with this I'm not buying anything wireless.

Just FYI, class AB also works, but you rarely see AB amps in the headphone world.

Its really just class B and D amps that suck for audio.

Class A and AB are good. The only issue with AB is that they are very rare in the headphone world.

Once we isolate an issue, we can then proceed with a soldering iron. Heck we might get luck enough where all you really need is a pair of nail cutter to cut a wire and a pair of pliers to twist some leads together.

But I need you to take that first baby step and have a quick look at the state of your crossovers.

Yeah, I will try and get that done this week. Has been a busy couple of weeks/weekends lately.

I have been testing side by side all night, and I prefer original Fulla over Fulla 2 (it has more of a soundstage and sub bass increase) (also I only prefer it over Type C connection, over standard USB 2.0 I prefer Fulla 2 over the Fulla 1. Funny stuff, heh.

My next project is going to be getting my replacement Monoloth M1060 April 17th when they come out and pairing with my Class A ifi ican SE, which will pump about 1-2 watts at 50 ohm into it (rated 4 watts at 16ohm) and the M1060 can handle up to 10 watts. So it will be interesting to see if they come "alive" with a little extra oomph. Before I was only using my Fulla 2, and honestly still preferred my Monoprice 8324 (not 8323) for EDM. So yeah...

In other news, I sold my Fulla 2 for $84, pending payment... and if I still prefer original Fulla + my legendary trio (pioneer se-a1000, 8324's, and shp-9500) over the ifi ican SE + M1060 version 2 (yes this is a version 2 coming out on April 17th, cracked wood is being upgraded, new cable, etc I have read)... then I will be keeping my ican SE (I got it for $165... not bad for a $400 MSRP at launch amp)...

So just a waiting game now for April 17th to get my M1060's.

Also, I am waiting on Bluetooth 5 IEM's, ACN's, and wireless in general to get good competition going in a year or two before I buy anything wireless, so I think a lot of us are in the same boat there. Still waiting on WhiteWulfe favorite IEM to arrive from China, the tenpro or w.e it is called... I bought one for $25.Currently my favorite IEM is Fiio K3, so it will be fun comparing those two.

Zeos said he likes M1060 sound better than LCD-2, LCD-X, and almost even HE-1000, and its about 90% as good as his all time favorite headphone the STAX SRS-3100. I think my issue was I was trying to pump them up with a Fulla 2... and they really need some oomph behind them... they are 110mm planar drivers after all.

Maybe someday Monoprice will make a electrostat, no one ever thought they would turn the planar world upside down on its head... and here we are... if they did... just warning you now, your eyes will bleed, and I will be banned from OCN for using caps lock nonstop :DDDDDD

I cannot recommend a device like the below enough. The difference is night and day. My Focals sound even better and I did not think this is possible. Best purchase I made thumb.gif.

@wishmaker How much did it cost you?

@whitewulfe TenMark Pro IEM arrived today, fits my ear sooooo good, and sounds fantastic honestly. I would say it ties in sound with my Fiio K3, but in comfort it is the clear winner... wow it just slides into the ear so well, haha. cheers mate!

Just as a heads up, zeos was comparing the M1060s to the lcd-2 fazored headphones which actually do sound pretty bad.

The LCD-X is just plain weird. It is very sensitive to the quality of amplifier you plug it into. The cavali liquid fire was the only amp that made the LCD-Xs sound good.

And the HE-1000s are known to be very boring and dull sounding.

So to sit there and say the M1060s are better than all of that isn't necessarily saying a whole lot. So just keep that in mind as you go forward.
